Loaded with ripe red cherry, blackberry and juicy plum, complemented with vanilla and spice notes. Rich and smooth with velvety tannins.
While the Private Reserve (Formerly Eclipse) series kits are more expensive, we feel that you will taste the difference. They come both from a specific region and with more concentrate, lending to more depth and complexity.
These kits come with everything you'll need to make a great wine in 8 weeks, including 14L juice concentrate, the yeast, preservatives, clarifiers, and if called for, oak. This kit also includes grape skins.
This Italian Super Tuscan wine concentrate kit makes 6 gallons (~30 750mL bottles) of delicious wine.
We don't always have all of our wine concentrate kits in stock. If you would like one that we don't have in the Shop, we will order it for you. Just give us an extra week or so for delivery.
There's a reason artists and lovers flock to this area of the world. Yes, its landscape is arguably among the most beautiful in the world, but more importantly the wine is legendary. Located at the same latitude as Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, this area of Italy sees warm, sunny summer days and nights where the Mediterranean provides a fresh cooling breeze. Winemakers have been making wine here since the 8th century BC and have decided to dedicate roughly 80% of the vineyards to red grape varietals.
Super Tuscans are proof that winemakers are also rebels in their own right. In the appellation of Chianti, where rules limited winemakers to certain grape varietals and practices in order to warrant official status, in the 1970s a few winemakers decided to break the rules and make wines that they decided were of superior quality, and disregarded the limitations. Coined "Super Tuscan", this full-bodied wine consists of Cabernet Sauvignon and the native Sangiovese, and has firm tannins, notes of cherry and currant and a long finish.
Italy is the land of food and wine, so naturally these wines are a perfect match with food. Try spaghetti Bolognese, osso buco or a big wedge of asiago cheese.
